Sunday marked the end of an era for Orange golfing as the Orange Ex-Services Country Club had its final round of competition on Saturday.
Country Club supervisor Ben Chippendale said is was "an emotional day" on the course as 120 members - about 70 men and 50 women - made their way around the holes for the final time before it closed on Sunday.
"It was very emotional, they'd get back to the club and be a bit teary-eyed," Chippendale said.
"It meant a lot to them."
While no-one was able to sink a farewell hole-in-one on Saturday, Andrew Smith managed to grab the final competition eagle on the fifth hole as players said farewell to the course.
Chippendale said the ninth hole - "one of the hardest par fours in Orange" - would be sorely missed.
"It's a dogleg and you've got to hit the drive just right to set up the second shot ... you've got plenty of trees in the way" he said.
He said nearly all the golfers would move across to Wentworth as part of the two clubs' merger, which was signed off on early this year.
The club's greenkeepers will also make the switch across to the Ploughman's Lane course, while most of the staff at the clubhouse will move to Ex-Services' Club's Anson Street operation.
Chippendale himself has been at the club for over 20 years, and said it was touching to see so many people show how much the club meant to them.
"It's definitely been a bit emotional... it's sad to see it go," Chippendale said.
